After Selby's comprehensive victory vs Roude, we thought we might witness a major upset when Roberto Pezzota took James Willstrop to a fifth game after an up and down match. But the tall Englishman regained composure and was able to come out as the victor for the delight of his team. Matthew, who's featuring in his last MWTC, then put on a very professional display to dispatch Romiglio in straight games. 

 

 HONG KONG BT IRAQ: 3-0

#1 Max Lee bt Husham Al-Saadi: 3-0 (11-3, 11-5, 11-3) - 21 min

Rasool Alsultani was the first player ever to win a game for Iraq in the MWTC when he equalized against Yip, but the HK #3 quickly regained the upper hand in the following two. Au and Lee won their matches in straight game but Iraq can be proud on their first outing in the competition.

After Mangaonkar quickly dispatched Mairinger, Sandhu had to work harder to beat Dirnberger 3-0 and close the tie, and then Malhotra - number 1 today because Ghosal was rested - was very impressive against Rehman. .
